A campaign In favor of a constitutional amendment will be shortly instituted. This, like all other important ques tions has two sides, on each of which are found honest and intelligent per sons. The Republican has decided to pro vide for a reasonable discussion of this issue in its pages, allowing to each side at least a half column daily for signed articles, for which there will be no charge. No anonymous article will be published. It is only stipulated that the com munications for and against prohibi tion be Just and fair and that In no case shall there be any wild and ex travagant statement that will in any way reflect upon- the reputation of Phoenix for good order. It is suggested by The Republican that either side, desiring to avail it self of this offer of space, name a committee through which all matter relating to the iasue shall be trans mitted. In such case, all communica tions received at this office from other sources will be rejected. We believe that this arrangement Is ne cessary to keep the discussion within reasonable lines. No paid advertisements from either side will be accepted. E FOR THE CITY This Is Duty of Committee of Twenty-five Citizens "Who Organized with A. A. Betts as Chairman at Trade Board Last Night.

PARKER -WOODMAN AMUSE MENT COMPANY MINING TOWNS AND SALOONS "Do the saloons help a man mine more ore or drill faster, or attend the various machines better? Do they help him to turn out a better day's work?" I asked my chance acquaintance. "Well, there is one thing that I will admit. A man that is full or one that has Just recovered from a drunk is not much use in a mine or anywhere else." "Let me ask you another question, Who has the best place in the mine and concentrator and office, the man who drinks or the man who does not?" "You have me there all right, I guess," he said. "Well if the saloon does not help a man in the mine or office or concen trator, where does it help him?" "Oh, it helps a man have a social good time with other men." "How about the wife and children? Where does their good time from the saloon come in? If it is so good for the man, why does he not take the wife and children along too?" "Oh, they would not like the sur roundings. Men want to be by them selves once in a while. They don't wart a lot of women around all the time." "Oh, I gee," I said, "The women are good enough without the saloon and content enough, but the men are neith er good enough nor content w ithout the saloon? Is that the idea?" He laughed but said nothing. I said: "That argument does you credit. What's your business?" "Who, me? I am in the gent's furn ishing business." "Is it not true that the best cus tomers you have are the poorest ones the saloon has and the poorest ones you have are the best the saloon hits?" "I have never given it a thought, but I guess you are right." "If the soons in this town were put out of business how much business would you lose?" "I don't know but the town would go dead and I would lose some, no doubt. We could not have lots of things, roads and other improvements if the saloons did not help pay the taxes." "Say," I said, "have you really thought that statement through? The money men pay to the saloon goes to the manufacturer, the railroad, the wholesaler, the retailer and his help, and the taxes. The men who support the saloon could pay the taxes, and If they kept the rest, instead of putting it into the saloon, would have a hun dred times as much to invest in gent's furnishings, groceries, land or what not, and still have more than the saloon now leaves them. Tou are insulting your own intelligence when you say a thing like that. Every dollar you get from the saloon involves the expendi ture of many others because of the poverty and crime that result from the liquor the saloons sell. If the putting out of business of the saloons does not affect the price of copper, nor the pro duction, except by increasing wages be cause of increased efficiency, where is your business going to get hurt?" "I do not know whether I will agree with you or not, but I am going to think the matter over. not thought this matter through yet I,. R. MATHEWSOX, Miami, Ariz. OFFICERS OF "MAYOR'S" I ADVISORY COMMITTEE At its organization meeting last j night the committee of twenty- five, known as the Mayor's Ad- visoy Committee, elected A. A. j j Betts as chairman and B.

The char.ee? o getting the recla mation extension bill through the le gal mill will probably not be delayed permanently by the senate's objection to the action of the house in adding the fund apportioning to their own financial committee's pork barrel. .Senator Mark Smith yesterday wived the water users that he would op-1 pose the house amendment taking , the power of appropriation and audit ing out of the hands of the reclama tion commission and vesting it in the linance committee. "But will not oppose it in case it becomes appar ent the bill will be killed," he con cludes. Copies of the bill, with the house amendment have not yet come to Phoenix, and as the amendment was not in the original set of proposed changes, those at this end are still in the dark as to its nature. But from Senator Smith's wire it is prob able that the house is tvying to take upon itself the work of doling out the moneys. Representative Carl Hayden opposed the amendment vig orously. After the senate gets through murdering the amendment, the bill 7 n S "ra,n' l"' , u' must go back to the house, and so departments will be supplied by the' am1 R0 foMh u, bn,h hranch(s advisory board. The committee was called to order; by Harry Welch, who had been have agreed on some sort of a final draft.

THEATER! mm TODAY AND TOMORROW The Death of a Geisha THE DEATH OF A GEISHA a three-reel special feature. A story of an episode fol lowing the Russo-Japanese war, a story of the land of sunshine and flowers. It is full of scenes of beautiful photography and a picture that you should not fail to A SOUL OF HONOR, a two-reel Majestic feature. The story is that of a sol dier who, influenced by his wife and being under her power to such- an extent that he fails to carry out his duty, pays the penalty for honor's sake. This Is a pic ture of unusual dramatic Interest and one that you cannot afford to miss. KEYSTONE COMEDY, "The Water Dog" is a roaring comedy with a plot which brings out a human interest climax when a clever little girl swimmer is piloted safe ly back to shore from a rock in the ocean by a well trained dog. The photo graphy Is excellent. SEE IT! SEE IT! SEE IT! Walter Hill of the Walter Hill company nas just returned from a i two months' tour of the east, em bracing a part of Canada. M. Hill found business quiet in the east, in contrast to the activity he discovered on his return to Phoenix, and which was especially pleasingly illustrated in the business of the Walter Hill company which was much heavier than the volume a year ago. Mr. Hill found the weather almost unbearable in the east. He never be fore suffered as he did while in Chi cago, and Chicago was not the only torrid spot he encountered. He re solved that he would never again leave the Salt River valley In the summer time. Future trips to the east will be made in the winter. Speaking of politics, Mr. Hill said that a majority and a large majority of the business men with whom he talked in Chicago favor Roosevelt for president in 1916. One man a feder al judge, appointed by President Taft, declared that Roosevelt was the safest man that could be elevated to the presidency. The strongest senti ment in favor of President Wilson found by Mr. Hill was in Toronto, Canada, and elsewhere in the Domin ion, which has been a great benefi ciary of the new tariff law. Concerning the European war, Mr. Hill said it was the opinion of bank ers whom he met that it would be of brief duration. The men who control the world's money would not long permit it to be used for a purpose which would paralyze the world's business. Mrs. Hill remained with friends at Mexico, Mo. Before returning to Phoenix she will visit the Pacific coast. o BRIEF COMMISSION MEETING Abrief meeting of the city commission was held last evening at which Mayor Young and Commissioners Foley and Woods were present. An ordinance approved the plans and a resolution of Intention for the paving of Madison street from Third street to Third ave nue were passed. The city attorney was Instructed to draw an ordinance compelling jewelers and pawnbrokers to report all purchases of second-hand articles. Resolutions of condolence to City Clerk Thomas upon the death of his mother were adopted. Adjournment I called for nominations. A. A. Betts was elected chaiman and B. O. Wal lingford. secretary. These with three members at large will constitute an Tou' executive committee. In his letter Mayor Young outlined the work that is to be done by the committee. Among other things. j these stand out prominently: To help the city out of difficulties, to plan a municipal paving plant, to seek a way of financing the disposal of garbage, to plan the city's part in building the new city hall, the elim ination of the town ditch, and such other things as need attention. Before adjourning to meet at the call of the chairman, the committee passed the following resolution: Resolved: That this committee of citizens, appointed- by the mayor, hereby constitutes itself an advisory committee to the City Commission of Phoenix: and Resolved: That it is the sense of the advisory committee that it shall consult with the City Commission in regard to constructive legislation and any other civic matters which may properly come before it; and Resolved: That it is the sense of this advisory committee that it shall ooncern itself solely with matters pertaining to the welfare of the city, and not with political or personal matters.
